Just as with the AMAZING stair treads I bought 3 years ago, this matching area rug grips the floor as if it were nailed down but...isn't! I have said before and I will repeat that these treads and rug are the absolute best purchase I have ever made of any item on line. And I say this because - while other items (even in completely unrelated product categories) may fully meet your expectations - these items totally exceeded my expectations. After 3 years, the stair treads are as grip tight as when I bought them and yet - easily removeable and full replaceable for cleaning. These are truly remarkable products.
